. >> is she right? what difference does it make? or is she wrong? >> i think it does make a difference, john, but i think she handled herself extremely well. there are three questions. why was security not provided despite the pleas. why was help not sent to these guys over seven hours of attacks, and what is responsible for the massive cover-up and fake stories about this video, anti-muslim video. she said to the third, i had nothing to do with the talking points, nothing to do with the military, i take responsibility for the lack of security. however, all these memos and cables that came, they all didn't come into my office personally, but i take responsibility. i think she handled it well, john. and the issue i think is pretty much gone now, and the republicans did it not succeed in what they were trying to cue. >> how would you describe hillary clinton at the house and the senate hearings? what kind of an adjective would you use? >> i would say she was commanding, i would say she was presidential. she came across very much as someone who is shouldering responsibility but she also avoided

in the senate confirmation of john kerry to be the next secretary of state. he will be confirmed. he was unanimously confirmed by the senate foreign relations committee and now he's going to be confirmed by this senate and then the president will have a swearing in ceremony for him. so this confirmation process is moving quickly, gloria, for john kerry. we'll let our viewers know the final vote once it occurs. not all republicans, as you know, are on board. john mccain, mark clindsey graham, there are others that are totally opposed. listen to marsha blackburn. she was on "starting point" earlier tu a day. >> i want to make sure that it is not amnesty. but i have to tell you that this is some of the particulars and legislative language that people want to see. what we've learned is if you grant amnesty, what do you get? more amnesty. and we have learned those lessons so let's see what the legislative language is going to be. let's make certain it is going to be fair. >> i think they will get the legislation passed in the senate, assuming this coalition, this bipartisan coalition hold
. host: senator john mccain yesterday at the bipartisan press conference, talking about why he thinks members of his party should get behind the proposal. caller -[video clip] >> the republican party is losing the support of the disparate regions of the hispanic citizens. this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. i think that over the years, republicans in particular, but also democrats and all of our citizens have realize the reality of what all of my colleagues just stated. we cannot continue as a nation with 11 million people residing in the shadows. we have to address the issue and it has to be done in a bipartisan fashion. if we do succeed, and i think that we will, it will be a testimony -- testimonial to the efforts of ted kennedy from years ago, which laid the groundwork for this agreement. this agreement has very little difference from that legislation that was brought by senator kennedy some years ago. host: john mccain of arizona, speaking yesterday. anita, new york, independent line. caller: it may be different in new york city, but why do these politicians assume tha
. what do you think? was baker speaking out of turn or not? john avalon and hogan digly. there's a disagreement in the nra. i don't know if you view it as a smackdown, it appeared to be to me. what do you make of this public divide within the nra? >> it's very, very interesting. of course, the nra has been thrust into the news because of the tragedy at newtown. they have a chance to actually grow their brand or hurt their brand and i think it remains to be seen exactly what the long-term effects of this are. but i saw that ad using the president's children. i think the spirit and the intent, the message behind the ad, look, his children are protected by people with heavy artillery and guns, wouldn't you want your kids to be protected the same way? that makes sense. the problem is, personally, my opinion is, i don't like using children in political ads of any kind. i think consistently speaking, i also don't like the president when he uses children to sign a bill, obama care uses children as props, he used them when he did the executive orders about gun control. so those types o

million gallons of oil into the sea. senator john kerry of massachusetts was confirmed today to be secretary of state. the vote was 94-3, as the five- term democrat won the overwhelming approval of his colleagues. kerry is 69, and a former democratic presidential nominee. senators from both sides praised him in a rare show of bipartisan support. john has already built strong relationships with leaders across the world. which will allow him to step seamlessly into the role of secretary of state. >> i don't know of anybody who has led the life that has been more oriented towards ultimately being secretary of state than john kerry. >> sreenivasan: kerry has been an unofficial envoy for the obama administration in recent years. he will succeed hillary clinton, who is stepping down after serving as secretary of state since 2009. in egypt, the army chief warned the country's political crisis could lead to the "collapse" of the state. general abdel-fattah el-sisi issued the warning as protests and violence extended into a sixth day. in port said, thousands of people marched in funer

director john dickerson in our washington bureau. john, if this is the way republicans see the president, how is anyone going to get anything done? >> the republican party has two challenges. the first is how to appeal to a changing electorate where minorities and younger voters are going to play a bigger role. and the second is how to oppose the in the a way that helps them define the party with those voters but without creating distracting conflicts. the only way the president annihilates the republican party as john boehner put it is if republican elected officials overreact. he is several them have been pleeching prudence. paul ryan the republican nominee said republicans can't play the villain in the president's morality play. so they have to pick their battles. and that sense of prudence lead to a short term deal on the debt limit and might lead to cooperation on issues like immigration. >> this week the president will be going to las vegas to deliver a speech about immigration. given how poorly republicans did with hispanics in the last election cycle don't they sort of have to cl

's successor, former massachusetts senator john kerry, was sworn in at a private ceremony this afternoon and starts work monday. for more on hillary clinton's legacy, we turn to two long-time foreign policy watchers. trudy rubin is the worldview columnist at the "philadelphia inquirer"; and susan glasser is executive editor of "foreign policy" magazine. >> well, trudy rubin, you heard the president just a moment ago say that hillary clinton was a great success as secretary of state, was she? >> i think it depends on how you define great success. if you are's talking about implementing his policy os within the confines of the policy, then she did a good job overseas, carrying out his ideas and making a terrific impression when she did public diplomacy. because she's such a talented politician, even overseas. but if it comes to signature achievements, either any big achievement under obama's policy, negotiation on middle east peace, or syria, on solving still existing issues in afghanistan and pakistan, apart from the pullout, or any doctrine of her own or signature issue of her own, i don
, and they will probably present that plan this week. we'll be talking to senator john mccain, senator bob menendez. they're working together on this plan. whether president obama detracts from the plan by going out on the road, going to nevada on tuesday, we're going to ask him about that, as well. >> interesting theory by just being associated with the plan it could drive some people away from the plan in congress. complicated dynamic. let's talk about this extraordinary interview, the joint interview, the first time it's happened with president obama and hillary clinton sitting down talking to "60 minutes." the whole thing airs tonight. i wonder is there talk in washington this isn't in some ways president obama picking favorites in the race to replace him in 2016 because joe biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right, and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that, and we'll talk to our powerhouse ro

. that's the speaker of the house, republican, john boehner. if the white house and congress can successfully reach a deal on immigration reform, that could have a big impact on the millions of illegal immigrants already here in the united states. but it would still not be an easy process, immigrants and u.s. officials deal with registration, background checks and even figuring out how much families valid to pay in taxes and fines. with me, an attorney specializes in immigration law and homeland security issues. and the managing director of the global security firm. >> good to be here. >> there are many pieces of this pie that people would have to go through. first of all, do you think people will willingly come forward and say, yeah, i'm here illegally? >> that's exactly the key issue. how do you get people to say, yes, i'm an illegal. i am going to participate in the system. so many of the groups that have come from around the world come from infrastructures where they don't trust the government. it's a cultural issue. it is part of the real obstacles we have. the headline is y
